STATWARS Primary and Secondary School Climate Change Challenge in time for COP26

Target audience - Primary School Pupil, Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old)

Challenge your pupils to become Climate STATWARRIORS!

In November 2021 the worlds eyes will be on Glasgow and the unique opportunity for its young people to lead the way in using data-led decision making to impact Climate Change.

Primary Engineer developed the STATWARS® Climate Change Challenge to focus learners in understanding what action they could personally take to affect change. The project which can be taught in the classroom or at home, considers the data of our carbon footprints.

By investigating and collecting data, learners are able to identify three things they will personally commit to doing differently, producing an infographic and a manifesto poster and a short film which will form part of a showcase report of young people’s voices at COP26.

Register now to access teaching and home learning resources and engage more widely with experts keen to support young learners understanding of the issues and data. It’s time for STATWARRIORS to unite!

STATWARS® is a free-to-schools annual project developed by Primary Engineer®. For more information visit our website via the link below.
